Globe Trotting and Tasting

The Golden Globes one of the most anticipated award shows for Hollywood’s biggest stars. Annually held at the Beverly Hilton. Hollywood’s biggest players come to get awarded and celebrate with the finest in the business. After the awards are over is when the real fun happens… the after parties.

I had the pleasure to attend the AMC viewing party, held in the Stardust Room of the Beverly Hilton. Guests dressed in tuxes and gowns , were escorted to a room decorated with gold design through out with multiple tasting stations. Here I nibbled on cheese boards, pizza stations, sushi bars, a raw bar, and a pasta station. There was endless champagne being poured while socials, industry figures, and celebrities watch the acclaimed award show. I was a bit surprised with some of the food I tasted here for such an elaborate affair, for it was average. I was disappointed that the raw bar filled with oysters, crab, shrimp, and mussels tasted tough with no flavor. (Pictured the dessert bar from AMC)

Next, I attended the NBC/Universal Pictures/Focus Features/E!
 after party, which was held on the garage roof of the Beverly Hilton. Here the food was a bit better with a wider variety. I noticed here all that was served were greasy finger foods and salads. The mini sliders were so good I had to have 2. (Pictured in the middle)

Lastly, my favorite, The HBO after party held at the downstairs pool. This party was decorated beautifully- once you attend, one feigns to return. Here the top celebs, industry leaders, and socialites get the real deal. Guests were given the option of meat, chicken, or fish accompanied by multiple pastas, salads, and vegetables. My favorite dish (pictured above) the roasted Brussels sprout Caesar salad. This salad was wonderful- packed with parmesan cheese, croutons, iceberg & romaine lettuce, bacon, and perfectly roasted Brussels sprouts. Needless to say I was busting the seams in my Golden Globe attire.

Best Bite- HBO’s ravioli truffle and parmesan pasta with cream sauce
